Good Questions: Opinions About Charcoal Color in the Home?

Los Angeles

Pin it button big

I am having a serious dilemma! My very new husband and I just moved into a 850 sq ft. loft in Los Angeles. It has bamboo floors, and white walls. The lower kitchen cabinets are black, and the upper cabinets are walnut. The walls are currently white. Right now, we only have a bed with this duvet, shown above, from CB2...

We are trying to quickly decide on a couch - we want gray, but are divided between a charcoal (blueish) gray and a warm gray. If we go for the charcoal, will it look more navy blue than gray? Our duvet is a beautiful lighter gray - and I want to keep it in the black/gray/white family. Our accents are orange. I have just never used charcoal in a space, so I am having a hard time picturing whether or not it will actually come off gray, or navy blue. Please - I need some seasoned, expert opinions!!! Anyone who has worked with charcoal fabrics can really help! Thank you!

Anyone out there with charcoal/gray upholstery in their home with an opinion?
